PUBLISHER'S NOTE FOURTH EDITION

The installation ceremony of the linga was performed on 11th May, 1951 by Dr. Rajendra Prasad, President of the Republic of India, in the presence of a huge concourse of people who had come from every part of India to witness the restoration of this Shrine Eternal.

Fourteen years thereafter, on 13th May, 1965, the booming of 21 guns announced the rising of the flag of Sri Somanatha temple on its shikhara at a height of 155 feet to mark the completion of Kalasha Pratishtha and Dhwajadanda ceremony at I p.m. by His Highness the Jam Saheb of Nawanagar, Chairman of the Somanatha Trust. On this memorable and auspicious occasion His Highness the Jam Saheb announced a munificent donation of Rs. 1,01,101/- to the Somanatha Trust.
